NLN President’s Update
March 2016
"Your Voices Were Heard!"

Donna Rothwell, NLN.ON President
Over the last several months, the NLN.ON Board received numerous emails and calls regarding the RNAO decision as outlined on July 27, 2015 in the RNAO “In the Loop” newsletter the following: “it is with enormous regret that the RNAO BOD unanimously decided at its July 2015 meeting to provide CNA with notice of withdrawal as a jurisdictional member.”

Region 10 proposed a Resolution that was presented to NLN.ON in collaboration with other chapters and interest groups seeking co-sponsorship. NLN.ON sought your valuable and timely feedback through a survey and we received one hundred and nine responses! Given the responses from our members, the NLN.ON Board supported Region 10’s proposed resolution to maintain its universal membership with C.N.A.
